2008 Sciarakè Etna Rosso, Etna, Sicily

( N/A, 13.5%, N/A UK (Available from the winery) )

I loved the concentrated and slightly dusty fruit in this Etna Rosso. This is a very approachable style, with fine tannins and an iodine tang at the end. Further proof that Nerello Mascalese can produce wines of considerable complexity without the need for any oak aging.
